This Really Makes You Think

I know that I have been a huge slacker about reading blogs and commenting.

Shame, shame, shame on me!

But I left to go out of town on Tues. morning, and I have been hanging with the family and my G-babies this entire week and will be----most of this next week, so I HAVE A GOOD EXCUSE! Finally.

I can always tell when I haven't been out there reading your blogs----I have a huge drop in comments----I shouldn't matter, but since I actually love to comment, as I ENJOY making someone feel good that their blog is being read, I hope that everyone out there understands that it does the same for me!

My day has been brightened many a time from comments from all of you-----so keep commenting! It can turn a rough day into a fantastic day.....

That said.......I read this in the blog of a super amazing blogger, M Cat, as she likes to call herself----she is an uber athlete, a terrific lady and I am really excited to be meeting her this week-----it is going to be one of the highlights of my visit to Utah! I am also hoping to meet the super-de-duper Tiburon, aka the Shark, the dancing queen, Arianne, the amazing Mom, Susette, and the feisty Rachel! I have grown to love these ladies from their blogs and am super excited to meet them in real life.

Don't worry, I will be posting about it after I get back----and yes, I WON'T FORGET MY CAMERA!!

So----back to this interesting article.....

...And yes, I have to preface it with the statement that I don't think that Bush was a perfect President,-----he had his faults, but this certainly makes you stop and think....

If George W. Bush had been the first President to need a teleprompter
installed to be able to get through a press conference, would you have
laughed and said this is more proof of how he inept he is on his own and is
really controlled by smarter men behind the scenes?

If George W. Bush had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to take Laura
Bush to a play in NYC, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had reduced your retirement plan's holdings of GM stock
by 90% and given the unions a majority stake in GM, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympics,
would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had given Gordon Brown a set of inexpensive and
incorrectly formatted DVDs, when Gordon Brown had given him a thoughtful and
historically significant gift, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had given the Queen of England an iPod containing videos
of his speeches, would you have thought this embarrassingly narcissistic
and tacky?

If George W. Bush had bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia, would you have

If George W. Bush had visited Austria and made reference to the
non-existent "Austrian language," would you have brushed it off as a minor

If George W. Bush had filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with
people who cannot seem to keep current on their income taxes, would you
have approved?

If George W. Bush had been so Spanish illiterate as to refer to "Cinco de
Cuatro" in front of the Mexican ambassador when it was the fourth of May
(Cuatro de Mayo), and continued to flub it when he tried again, would you
have winced in embarrassment?

If George W. Bush had mis-spelled the word advice would you have hammered
him for it for years like Dan Quayle and potatoe as proof of what a dunce
he is?

If George W. Bush had burned 9,000 gallons of jet fuel to go plant a single
tree on Earth Day, would you have concluded he's a hypocrite?

If George W. Bush's administration had okayed Air Force One flying low over
millions of people followed by a jet fighter in downtown Manhattan causing
widespread panic, would you have wondered whether they actually get what
happened on 9-11?

If George W. Bush had failed to send relief aid to flood victims throughout
the Midwest with more people killed or made homeless than in New Orleans ,
would you want it made into a major ongoing political issue with claims of
racism and incompetence?

If George W. Bush had ordered the firing of the CEO of a major
corporation, even though he had no constitutional authority to do so, would
you have approved?

If George W. Bush had proposed to double the national debt, which had
taken more than two centuries to accumulate, in one year, would you have

If George W. Bush had then proposed to double the debt again within 10
years, would you have approved?

****So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and
impressive? Can't think of anything? Don't worry. He's done all this in 5
months -- so you'll have three years and seven months to come up with an

I hope you have a fun trip to Utah!

jana said...

I, for one, am pleased to have a president that can speak in complete sentences. It sets a good example for the children...

Suzanne said...

So happy you are able to spend time with your grandbabies AND meet those wonderful women on your trip.

Oh goodness. I could go on an on about how concerned I am about our country under the current leadership. He may be able to speak in complete sentences, I'll give him that, but it's what he says that scares me to death. Seriously.

susette said...

I'm looking so forward to getting together with you and the other ladies mentioned. I just can't believe you are right here in our neck of the woods. That's pretty exciting!

carma said...

I've had some of the same thoughts and I commend you on having the balls to post this. Any time anyone questions the current president, it seems that they need to be prepared for lots of hate mail, which is very unfortunate.

Have a great trip :D

P.S. I always enjoy visiting your blog, whether or not you have a chance to comment on mine - absolutely no pressure from me :D

M-Cat said...

WOW! Thanks for the shout-out! Can't even TELL you how excited I am about Tuesday's dinner. I could just piddle!!

Christy said...

I hope you have a chance to meet all those women in Utah and then report back to us on how much fun it was!

Rachel said...

It does make one think! Thanks for sharing that.

Rachel said...

Oh I am excited to meet you too! It's been far too long :)

Mrs. Organic said...

I look forward to seeing the pics and I can't believe you're coming all this way and not meeting up with with Kristina P or me. :)

Have a great time snuggling up those grandbabies.

Mom n Pop Wilson said...

I heard the family had a fabulously fun dinner at Margy's. Wish I could have been there. Hope you have a great week!

Rhonda said...

Very well said. I so wish I could be there having dinner with those ladies too... boo hoo.

HOWEVER, when you come home, we can grab Susette (who will be visiting here) and a few others and meet in CT or MA!

tiburon said...

It was so great to meet up! I had a blast.


Let's make out.

Kay said...

Thanks for stopping by, and for sharing an interesting article! It's always nice to find other artists; the company I'm working with right now is less than two years old, so we're in the same "we all do a bit of everything" boat!

kado! said...

hey...if your day is being filled with all that fun stuff you of course have an excuse to leave the bloggy-land for a little while!

I can't wait to see all the bloggers you meet....oh and Kristina P. lives there too...I'd love to see her in real life too!

...and if you get a chance before the end of the week...I'd love you to stop by my blog...I need your vote for a contest I'm in!

Karen said...

I hope you have a great trip to Utah!

And I am right there with ya on the GW stuff!

The Redhead Riter said...

I have a few things for you on my blog :o)

Julie said...

Oh dear....I have to say I hate talking politics with loved ones ( yes, that means you!) and, sadly, I will never be a fan of Bush...but I am still a fan of you and your adorableness! Good for you to speak your mind regardless...I can always agree to disagree. And, I hope you have a most wonderful trip and then come back and tell us one of your magical stories which i so enjoy. Miss you dearheart...xxxxx

Debbie said...

I can't wait to hear all about your trip. And like you, I feel sad when my comments drop. Oh well. I guess that is just part of it!

Son and Julie said...

Great post! I agree that there are numerous things that people overlook just because he is the candidate that they voted for...
